Through your eyes: 150 years of Stonehenge – in pictures | Art and design


Last year, to celebrate 100 years since Stonehenge was given to the nation, English Heritage asked the public to share their photographs of the monument. More than 1,000 pictures, taken from 1875 onwards, were sent in and 148 are now going on show at the site. “It’s a fascinating look at the changing history of photography, posing, fashion, as well as Stonehenge,” says Susan Greaney, senior historian for English Heritage. Some of the images are very poignant. One shows a girl next to her 20-year-old brother in military uniform. “Sadly, this was the last time she saw him as he was killed in a bombing raid the following year,” says Greaney. “The images show what an enormous part Stonehenge plays in people’s memories.”

Your Stonehenge: 150 years of Personal Photos runs from 12 December to late August 2020
